mosh has been uploaded to cygwin.
The mosh people are now happy to point their windows folks over here. Oh my :)
See http://mosh.mit.edu/

"New remote terminal application that allows roaming, supports
intermittent connectivity,
and provides intelligent local echo and line editing of user keystrokes.
Mosh is a replacement for SSH. It's more robust and responsive, especially over
Wi-Fi, cellular, and long-distance links."

The necessary deps are protobuf and perl-IO-Tty.

protobuf existed before in cygwinports and has been moved over to
cygwin. Thanks Yaakov!
http://code.google.com/p/protobuf/
"Protocol Buffers are a way of encoding structured data in an
efficient yet extensible format.
Google uses Protocol Buffers for almost all of its internal RPC
protocols and file formats."

libprotobuf-devel contains /usr/bin/protoc, the compiler.

perl-IO-Tty is just the IO::Tty perl cpan module from my fellow
coworker toddr. Hi Todd!

New packages:
* mosh-1.2.2-1
* libprotobuf7-2.4.1-1
* libprotobuf-devel-2.4.1-1
* perl-IO-Tty-1.10-1
